Hmm... great idea, and it would have worked if they had skipped the schmaltz. It was a bit too nice. I think the writer started off with a decent ending (incorporating bits of other things) then working the plot backwards. The prologue was rushed, and was more like a preview of something that had happened in previous episodes of a television series, which may have been a better format for this story line.

Watchable but not a classic

Interesting story, but for me in trying to keep the audiences attention it perhaps had too many strands and the impact of the ending suffered for it!
